CB&I Wins Turnkey LNG Project in Canada
|Tuesday, August 23, 2005
CB&I has been awarded a lump-sum turnkey contract valued in excess of US $100 million for the design and construction of storage tanks for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal near Port Hawkesbury on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. The facility will be owned and operated by Bear Head LNG Corporation, a subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) of The Woodlands, Texas.
The Bear Head LNG project is designed to meet the growing demand for natural gas in markets in eastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast. The project involves the construction and operation of an approximately 7.5 million tons per annum capacity LNG terminal with a sendout capacity of 1 billion standard cubic feet per day. First gas deliveries through the Bear Head terminal are targeted for late 2008.
CB&I's work scope for the project includes the turnkey engineering, procurement and construction of two 180,000 cubic meter LNG storage tanks, including foundations, insulation, paint and piping to grade. Engineering and procurement activity for the project is under way.
"We are very pleased to partner with Anadarko on this significant development," said Gerald M. Glenn, CB&I's Chairman, President and CEO. "The Bear Head project will be Canada's first LNG import terminal and will provide an important new source of clean energy."
